Writing, Life coaching, Criminology, and more. But I simply do these, I am not these. I just am.
Turn Every-day Life Into A Living Lab
My progenitor, Alcibiades (an important politician, orator, and general in ancient Greece), used to say that a great commander has to be able to predict. Nowadays, in business, leaders need to have that skill and also, to combine it with the ability to detect the unique points, the gifts, and the weaknesses of every person in their team. This way, they can find the ideal method of operation, in order to make their employees (or the people they coach) act at their very best.
A Courageous Young Woman
It was the first time I had to deal with something like that. I wasn't particularly nervous. Thoughts were swirling in my mind; about the great battle humans have to fight to tame their primitive animal instincts. I also made mental notes from the lessons we had taken on how to handle that kind of situation. "You'll be fine", Nassos told me. "Just think of how you'd want to be treated after something like this if you were in her shoes", he added. Empathy, I thought.
Working From Home: Blessing Or Curse?
The term "home-based business" was once something that seemed strange to most people, as the model of the classic employer-employee relationship that took place in a particular space out of the house (office/shop, etc.) for specific hours daily, constituted the only way of working that was considered "normal". Nowadays, work from home jobs or freelancing is a very common choice for many professionals. But, is it also an efficient one?
Do We Want Kids Free and Responsible Or Unfree And Obedient?
People are usually confused about freedom. They think it's a situation in which you do whatever you want, to whomever you want, without boundaries or caring about the consequences. So, they (unintentionally) train their kids to be obedient, trapped in behavioral molds, and moved by stereotypes. They prefer it this way, instead of letting children remain free (as they come to this world). Because they forget, or they don't know the one thing that could teach them to "use" freedom well: Responsibility.
You took a walk, and you came to my bathroom. A long distance from up there, but you are also everywhere somehow. I sensed your presence
Your Freedom's Key-holder
His routine got tired of him; it tells him to dream. Repeated actions, unconsciously chosen keep him in deep, muddy waters.
Dear Eftychia, Yesterday, I was in the waiting room of a dentist, observing the way he chose to decorate it. He has a thing with the number "2". He likes creating pairs. Two identical small tables, each with the same vase on it and with the same chair beside. Each vase had the same flower in it. The bottom shelf of each table, had a stack of magazines perfectly aligned, with not a single angle to protrude.
My Inner Ocean
Which ocean is more mysterious than the one in me? Question marks swim and swirl in it. Answers are rocks I find and keep.
